Description

In this article from The West Australian, the attendance of the Apostolic Vicar of North-West Australia at celebrations in Cologne for the 700th anniversary of Cologne Cathedral is reported. The proceedings, the article suggests, were opened with a ceremony of “medieval splendour”. The man in question is most likely the German-born Bishop Otto Raible, who succeeded Bishop Ernesto Coppo as the Apostolic Administrator of the Vicariate of Kimberley in Western Australia in 1928. He continued in this position until 1935, when he was consecrated as a bishop. Thereafter, he served as the Vicar Apostolic between 1935 and 1958. He was succeeded by Bishop John Jobst in 1959, when the jurisdiction was also renamed the vicariate of Kimberleys. In 1966, it was promoted as the Diocese of Broome.
